Myer is Australia’s largest department store. It trades in all Australian states and one of Australia’s two self-governing territories. Myer retails a wide and large range of products for men, women, teens, children and babies, footwear and accessories, cosmetics and fragrance, homewares, electrical goods: computer, furniture, bedding, toys, video games, GPS, car audio, books, stationary, confectionery and travel goods.
The Myer retail group was started by Sidney Myer, who migrated from Russia to Melbourne in 1899 after the height of Victoria’s gold rush, with very little money and little knowledge of English to join his elder brother, Elcon Myer, who had left Russia two years earlier. They opened the first Myer store in Bendigo, Victoria in 1900. After prospering, they opened a second store in Bendigo in 1908.
